(This question shows up on every SE meta site sooner or later, but the system won’t let it be deleted now that it has a constructive answer.)
Why is someone downvoting my answers without commenting? I am a devoted musician with helpful hints, time tested and taught successfully. Some of my techniques are shortcuts, admittedly, but they can help a learning player break through a barrier or two.
Uncommented negative votes (some have been reversed by now, perhaps after I had to figure out without help how to reword answers) undermine the well-intentioned content of an answer. Why can't these be conversed?
I am not here to scoop up points, but I sincerely want to share the benefit of what I’ve been taught, of what I’ve learned, and what I’ve stumbled across. Please let my answers settle at 0 votes. If you go negative, please leave a constructive comment. I am also here to learn.
